Another Hoopster in the House

After following in Blake's footsteps and playing soccer since he was in kindergarten, Nick grew a bit weary of the sport over the past year. It was his second year of playing at club level. Unfortunately his team lost every game over those past two seasons. And Nick played keeper, often putting undue pressure on himself.

So as the season winded down, he vehemently announced he wouldn't be playing soccer anymore and simultaneously developed an interest in playing basketball.

Through a friend, Nick landed on a club team, and has been shooting, dribbling and rebounding with a fierce and passionate intensity ever since.

He's scored six points so far and see him excited to get out and play warms my heart ... and is so much less stressful than trying to force him out the door to soccer practice :)
